SPARKS– A sheriff’s examination into last year’s death of a 30-year-old suspect in the custody of Stimulates police has concluded no criminal charges are required against any of the officers included.

Kristofer Talancon of Stimulates passed away quickly after a struggle with cops who arrested him as a suspect in a domestic battery on Oct. 15, 2016.

The Washoe County Sheriff’s Workplace forwarded its independent investigative report to Sparks Police Chief Brian Allen, who announced on Thursday that the county medical inspector concluded the cause of death was “heart arrhythmia.”

The autopsy and lab tests figured out the death resulted from “methamphetamine intoxication and physical struggle/restraint by authorities.”

Allen said his officers were cleared of any misbehavior and the case has been closed.

Sheriff’s spokesperson Bob Harmon verified Friday there will be no criminal charges.
